Service providers are looking for ways to lower operating expenditures, and increase margins, while consolidating resources and at the same time offering new value-added services to their subscriber base. REDCOM (News - Alert) Laboratories Inc., a designer and manufacturer of digital and IP-enabled telecommunications systems, offers next-generation solutions that enable service providers to deploy flexible multi-technology networks that can adapt to increasing end-user demands and competitive industry dynamics at a lower operating cost. Its next-generation solutions are powerful multi-technology telecommunications systems ideal for public exchange switching including end office, tandem office, media gateway and international gateways.
REDCOM announced that Digital Communications Services (DCS) has installed a REDCOM High Density Exchange (HDX) softswitch at Grandview Mutual Telephony Company in Paris, Illinois, replacing a legacy Mitel (News - Alert) GX5000 Class 5 switch. DCS is an engineering design, development, management and installation services enterprise that has provided value-added services to the domestic and international telephony industries for more than 27 years.
The HDX is a powerful, next-generation Class 4/5 softswitch that works as a cost-effective adjunct/overlay on an existing network. Based on REDCOM’s patented distributed architecture, the scalable and stackable HDX minimizes the risk of single point failures as it distributes resources system-wide and network-wide, using multiple points of direct access.
“DCS provided Grandview Mutual Telephone Company with a full turnkey solution to replace their obsolete Mitel GX5000 Class 5 switch and CDR Collection System,” said Ted Snedeker, president of DCS. “The REDCOM HDX positions Grandview Mutual to provide next-gen services that today’s and future customers require.”
REDCOM’s Maintenance Administration and User Interface (MAUI) provides Grandview Mutual Telephone with an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) that simplifies the configuration and maintenance of their new HDX softswitch. With MAUI, the company now has a user-friendly graphical overview of their entire telecommunications system.
The HDX softswitch has also been selected and installed with other companies such as Northwestel, FSM Telecommunications Corporation and Alaska Communications (News - Alert). The REDCOM HDX reduced power consumption while providing the opportunity to migrate to IP-based services in the future and reduces risk and enables a planned migration to next generation services.
